seeking info to fill in the many blanks on this family line - any help/direction would be greatly appreciated.

From a family researcher comes the following info: if you can add to /correct PLEASE do.

Robert H. KARSTENS (b:3mar1915) Davenport, Scott Co. IA- his father was

Rudolf Alfred KARSTENS (or Alfred Rudolf) (b:2nov1889) Davenport, Scott Co. IA (d:4apr1971) Costa Mesa, CA -profession(s)horseshoer and welder. He married Della A. EBERLE in 1913 in Davenport. his father was

John F. (possibly Frederick)(b:apr1857)(d:1914)Davenport, IA. He married Catherine (?FORAHM or ?FRAHM) (b:aug1858) in 1887 in Germany then immigratd to IA in 1882. John was naturalized in 1897 in Scott Co., IA.

Della A. EBERLE (oct1885) Davenport, IA. Her mother was Wilhelmina (Minnie)UNKNOWN born in Denmark may1863. Wilhelmina's parents were born in Germany. She immigrated to the US in 1871 (*she also lists 1876 & 1870 in various documents) Her father was Wendelin W. EBERLE, born in Liechtenstein in may1859. He immigrated with his parents in 1864/1865. He married Wilhelmina in 1881 in Davenport. his profession was listed as cigar maker. his father was

Karl EBERLE (aka Charles & Carl)b:1825 Leichtenstein he married Ludwina (??NAGEL??)(b:1835 Leichtenstein) he is also thought to have been a 'stone mason'their immigration date is listed as 1863

There is some EBERLE information in the book "To America: History of Emigration from Leichtenstein to the USA" by Norbert Jansen written in 1976= pages 169=213. i do not have access to this book to verify any possible info in it.

in different records, Wendelin states his parents were born in Austri and others in Germany. Della states that her father was born in Switzerland in the 1920 census.

so far this is all i have on this family line=
if you can help, thank you
